Swinging on the Garden Gate: A Spiritual Memoir

Written by Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew

A woman’s coming-of-age journey through the rugged landscape of Wales to the reflective quiet of a retreat center. Along the way she questions and explores the depth of her Methodist faith as she comes to terms with her bisexual identity.

Andrew skillfully and seamlessly weaves the threads of spirituality, sexuality and the creative process out of the compelling events of her life. Her inspiring memoir stretches from the faith of her childhood, in which she was “taught to look for the Word in the Bible,” to her revelation as an adult that “the word of God resides in each of us–it dwells among us, full of grace.”
